Satan's Chimney

When an actress is murdered on the set of her latest movie, Jonathan is called upon to explain how the killer managed to fire a gun through a plate glass window without breaking it. The funeral, held at the ancient Doomdorf Castle in Scotland presents more mysteries and Jonathan, without Maddy, has only a pushy showbiz agent, Carla Borrego, to trust.
